This review was originally posted on my blog.

Phew! This was hot! Alexis Jones is a college-dropout, working as a receptionist at a law firm. She doesn't have a life outside of the office. A few broken hearts too many have made her cynical. When the firm's most important client walks in the door, she has no idea just how drastically her world is about to change.

Brad Reinehart is the heir to his deceased grandfather's empire. Along with inheriting the family business, he also inherited a problem. When he meets Alexis for the first time, he can't help but act on his attraction towards her. She just may be the answer to his problems.

This was a very short story, so we get to the nitty gritty very quickly. Alexis is swiftly and easily seduced by the handsome and powerful CEO. And why not? The way he looks at her, the way his whispered words make her feel. She's a nobody compared to him, but he wants her. In a moment of what Alexis would probably term "temporary insanity", she gives herself over to him. Ms Roberts sure knows how to write some hot scenes!

The plot isn't anything new, or at least I wasn't surprised. However it definitely fit the pace at which they were traveling. I'm curious enough to want to know what happens next, and to get more Alexis and Brad time. The endings to their encounters were a little odd, almost clinical, and took them a few days to actually talk.

What didn't work for me is the fact that this (trilogy) is broken into three parts. I feel kind of boned. The second book is around 48 pages and the third book is around 41 pages. At $2.99 that just seems a little expensive for a 10 minute read. If each book featured a different couple and story, then I could understand splitting up the series. But this is about the same couple, beginning, middle and end, so why isn't this one complete novel? I can guess why. I have added the other two books to my TBR list, but until the price drops, I won't be in a hurry to read them. Sorry. Anyway, I really liked it, but I am deducting points because I don't appreciate the ploy to get me to spend nearly $6 for a few additional pages. ( )
